Accountability for Drunk Driving Injuries and Deaths
Colorado law allows drunk driving accident victims to pursue third-party liability claims against additional parties who may have been partially responsible for the accident:Advocating for the rights of Colorado accident injury victims, our lawyers hold negligent drunk drivers and other responsible parties accountable. When a driver makes the reckless decision to drink and drive, lives are put at stake.
While the driver can be held criminally responsible for drunk driving, our attorneys also hold negligent drunk drivers financially responsible for our clients’ losses.
- Dram shop liability: Bars, restaurants and other liquor-serving establishments can be held financially responsible if a patron is over-served alcohol and subsequently causes a drunk driving accident that results in serious bodily injury or wrongful death.
- Social host: The social host provision of Colorado’s dram shop laws provides that individuals who provide alcohol to underage individuals — whether at a college party or other social gathering — should be held accountable if one of the underage individuals who was served subsequently causes a serious or fatal drunk driving accident.
